Ground Floor, SKYCITY Atrium
Cnr of Federal and Victoria Streets, Auckland
There’s only a few restaurants inside the Sky City Casino, we decided we didn’t want Asian because we’re Asian and we tried eating at the buffet but it was booked (damn!). A security guard pointed us outside to a few restaurants, which I previously read on before arriving at Auckland, but since we were lazy we opted to eat here instead. Longest reasoning haha.
This all-day-cafe turns into a fine dining restaurant by night. Dim lighted near the entrance, as you can see on the last pictures there’s a place well lit. It’s not too fancy where you have to dress up, since it was extremely cold I opted to wear something cosy but still nice. It’s contemporary design is easy on the eyes, I barely heard any background music which makes it a perfect place to have a lovely conversation. The staff were attentive… a bit. I don’t think they ever came back to refill our glasses. A young man did when he was setting up for our dessert.
I give them a thumbs up, for not restricting their establishment to bookings only! As you can see the ranges are $18 NZ +.
His: Moroccan seasoned lamb rump $27.50NZ – The pumpkin puree was a perfect blend with the rump, as well as the pine nut with couscous salad, jus and watercress.
